Apply For Funding

Have you got an idea for a Community Project? Do you need funding to get your project off the ground?

As part of our agreement with Santander Universities, we are able to offer funding of up to £500 to support or establish new volunteering projects through our Community Project Fund.

Grants are available to pay for essential materials, tools, training or equipment to take your idea out of your head and into the community. So if you have an idea for a community project, whether it's with a local charity or a completely new idea, get in touch to see if we can help you take your idea forward!
